Status Report on Management Cease Trade Order

Further to its news releases dated March 18, 2014 and April 1, 2014, the Company has received a management cease trade order ("MCTO") from the Autorité des Marchés Financiers ("AMF") the Company`s principal regulator on March 21 2014 in accordance with National Policy 12-203 Respecting Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults (NP "12-203").

The Company applied for the MCTO once it was determined that it would be unable to refile and restate the annual audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 and the condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013, as well as the related management discussion and analysis (MD&A) (the "Outstanding Materials") which the Company had previously undertook to restate and refile.

The MCTO imposes trading restrictions on securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect by certain members of management of the Company as well as insiders and remains in effect until the Outstanding Materials are filed. All other parties are permitted to trade freely in the Company's securities

The Company's former auditors who were engaged to audit the 2012 restated consolidated financial statements are in the completion stages of the audit, which have taken longer than anticipated due to the number of material subsequent events which occurred after December 31, 2012. As such, the Company anticipates that it will be in a position to file the Outstanding Materials by April 21, 2014. The Company intends to comply with the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203 ("AIG") for as long as it remains in default, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a news release.

Pursuant to the requirements of the AIG, the Company reports that, since the issuance of the default announcement on March 18, 2014 and the status report filed via press release on April 1st, 2014 there has not been any material change to the information provided therein, nor has there been any failure by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the AIG. As disclosed in the March 18, 2014 press release, the Company anticipates that it will be unable to restate and refile annual audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 and the condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013, as well as the related management discussion and analysis and CEO and CFO certificates. There has not been any other specified default by the Company under NP 12-203 and there is no material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
